The Juzo® Difference: Because compression therapy garments are designed and manufactured differently, there are a few key features to look for to ensure a positive, comfortable wearing experience.
Latex-Free- All Juzo® garments are Latex-Free! Garments manufactured with latex rubber have a shelf life. Over time, the latex rubber compression fibers will begin to breakdown and crumble from exposure to sunlight, heat, oils, lotions, ointments, or simply through wear. Some people run the risk of acquiring latex skin allergies while wearing garments made with latex.
Material- All Juzo® garments are made with Lycra! Lycra® is the highest quality synthetic compression fiber on the market. Lycra resists wear-and-tear. Some companies use Spandex -- a lower grade fiber, or latex rubber compression fibers which wear, are more susceptible to breakdown, are harder to care for and typically less comfortable to wear.
Covered Threads- Exclusive FiberSoft™ process wraps each compression fiber. Does your compression garment have a shine to it or feel sticky when you run your fingers over it on the inside? This indicates uncovered compression fibers! Stockings made with covered compression fibers are very important because they add wearing comfort, ensure greater durability, softness and ease of putting on and taking off. Juzo®’s exclusive FiberSoft™ process wraps each compression fiber with soft, protective threads which lift the compression fiber off the skin and increases the garments durability and comfort.
Ease of Care- Juzo® garments can be machine washed and dried. Compression therapy garments should be washed and dried each night. Latex rubber compression garments must be hand-washed and air-dried, while latex-free garments can be machine-washed and dried on low heat settings.
Perfect Fit- Juzo® features an easy-fit off the rack sizing plan. Juzo® offers a wide range of standard sizes to accommodate your needs. Plus, we also make custom-made garments tailored to fit virtually any size and shape.
